Hard luck to the three Tipperary clubs which were narrowly defeated in Munster Club Championship last weekend. Moyle Rovers travelled to Austin Stack Park Tralee to play Kerins O’Rahillys in the Munster Club Senior Football Championship semi-final and in very difficult conditions put up a great performance before a 53rd minute goal from Declan Quill proved to be decisive in securing a 1-8 to 0-9 victory for the Kerry side. In the Junior Hurling semi-final Aherlow were defeated by Blackrock of Limerick by 0-11 to 0-9 and in the Junior Football quarter-final Knockavilla Kickhams suffered a heartbreaking one point defeat after extra time to Mountcollins of Limerick on a scoreline of 1-9 to 1-8.

There were mixed fortunes for the Tipperary representatives in the Munster club championships last Sunday. Congratulations to Aherlow on their victory after extra time over Tourin / Glen Rovers of Waterford at Sean Treacy Park, Tipperary Town in the Munster Junior Hurling Championship quarter final. They will now go on to play Blackrock of Limerick on Sunday next at 2pm at Kilmallock and we wish them every success. Commiserations to the Carrick Swans intermediate footballers who travelled all the way to Killarney where they lost to Kerry representatives Spa in their quarter final game.

Good luck to Moyle Rovers for their Munster Club Senior Football championship semi-final game against Kerins O’Rahillys of Kerry at Austin Stack Park, Tralee on Sunday next, November 22nd at 2pm.

Good luck to Thurles Sarsfields for their Munster Club Senior Hurling Quarter Final against Newtownshandrum of Cork in Semple Stadium at 2.30pm on Sunday. Sarsfields were defeated by Newtownshandrum in the Munster Club championship in 2005 so this will no doubt provide additional motivation for Sunday’s game. The winners will have a home venue for the semi-final against the Limerick champions, Adare which is due to be played on Sunday November 15th.  Interestingly, Cian O’Neill, the Tipperary senior hurling team trainer, is part of the Newtownshandrum backroom team.

Good luck also to Carrick Davins for their Munster Club Intermediate Hurling Quarter Final against Whitegate of Clare which will be played in Whitegate on Saturday, October 31st at 2pm. The winners will have a home venue for the semi-final against South Liberties of Limerick which is scheduled for Sunday, November 8th.
